CNN leave microphone on

Ah classic. CNN left anchorwoman Kyra Phillips microphone on while she went to the rest room. Nothing really embarrassing, at least from a bodily function perspective like in Naked Gun, but she did describe her husband as "handsome and he is genuinely a loving, you know, no ego" and her sister-in-law as "just a control freak" on national television.

The real shame is this was during a live broadcast of George W Bush's from New Orleans. It would have been far more entertaining if she had been complaining about Bush, or even better if the handsome comments had been about Bush and not her husband. That would have been hilarious.

I have to wonder if the sound men of the world have a grudge against President Bush this is not the first time they "forgot" to turn off a microphone.
